of the late u.s. commissioner of education ernest boyer. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> kathleen, the last time you were here you said all we've got left in the search for truth and knowledge is the debate. all right, are you satisfied now? >> no, we did not get an answer to the question that i wanted answered, which is "what are the sacrifices you're going to ask of us? where are you going to get the money that we need in a way that won't tank the economy, that will increase the likelihood of econoc growth?" and so, the problem now facing the country and the candidates is we're going to elect a candidate who is going to govern by asking us to make choices that we haven't anticipated. and as a result, we're going to feel betrayed to some extent, even if we voted for that candidate. >> the debates were the most watched in a long time. your field intersects politics and entertainment. do you think entertainment values had something to do with this? >> well, i think suspense was what was required down to the wire. and that's what we got. one won one, another won another
leadership, and this week that's what lou has been thinking about, authenticity. here is author and educator, lou heckler. >> on a recent trip, my wife and i attended a church service where the sermon was about authenticity. it got me thinking about the best boss i ever had. this gentleman had that rare ability to be squarely in charge and yet make you feel like he always had your back. he demanded much of those of us working for him and was equally generous with rewards for a job well done. if you made an error he was concerned but forgiving and particularly focused on the lessons you learned. better still, we all knew this wasn't just what he did, it was who he was. howard schultz, founder of starbucks says it this way: authentic brands don't emerge from marketing cubicles or advertising agencies. they emanate from everything the company does. if you have customers or employees, how would they rate your company's authenticity? the old phrase "fake it until you make it" may work in some situations, but not in this arena. i'm lou heckler. >> tom: finally, like million oamericanin the ph of s

particularly highly compared to the economy and opportunities in education and defense and crime and things like that. but that's been declining over time. in fact, you unpack the environment section of what people care about, climate tends to rank virtually dead last. people are more concerned with their local environment: air pollution, water pollution, things like that. this is why we've seen these new poll-tested terms like "carbon pollution." c.o.-2 is the thing i'm exiling at you right now, we breathe out rbon dioxide. soe're seeing new terms called green energy instead of climate change because polls show people are skeptical and dubious of those motivations. they believe it's been overblown and it turns people off. >> suarez: joseph romm, why haven't we heard more about this topic during the national campaign? >> well, of course, mitt romney gets money from fossil fuel interests that's one reason he even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest polling shows that -- i think ken is right. when global warming becomes
